Hopefully, the Your Christmas List web site is so easy to use, you won't need any help! But if you do, you're at the right place. If we are missing anything that would improve the help or help the site in general, please click here and let us know!


Here are some of the features of the site:

Gift List

Add items you would like to receive for Christmas and get exactly what you want. Putting links in the description helps people determine what is it you are describing.

You can also arrange your gifts in the order of priority of what you want.

User Groups

You can belong to multiple groups. For example, you may belong to a group with your family and another group with your friends. Both your family and your friends will see the same list you posted, and if someone in your family purchased something, your friends know that do you won't get duplicate gifts.

Purchase Plans

Let everyone (except the recipient, of course) know what you plan on purchasing and what you have already bought. Keep the recipient from getting duplicates, and you can enter new ideas about what to get the recipient. If you know that a specific gift is already purchased, you can purchase an accessory without worrying about them not being able to use it.


Post anonymous comments about a gift that can be seen by the recipient as well as everyone in the group. This can be useful if you need to ask a question, but don't want them to know who is asking it. They can reply and everyone can see it.

Or, post a comment that cannot be seen by the recipient. If you need to get an answer from other gift givers or just let them know something, this is the way to do it.

Secret Santa

The system will assign a random set of givers and recipients without anyone knowing who has whom!

When all of the names have been entered for your group, a simple press of a button will assign Secret Santa names for everyone and send everyone an email to let them know who their Secret Santa Recipient is.

There is also an option to keep a person from getting specific people for their Secret Santa recipient. This helps if you don't want your spouse or child as your Secret Santa recipient.


The site works on any device: desktop, tablet or mobile.

Family Tested

Our family has been using Your Xmas List for years! It really does help you get exactly what you want for Christmas and usually keeps you from getting duplicates. We say usually because it depends on everyone marking their gifts as Planning to purchase or Purchased, and others paying attention!
